This movie…whoa, okay? Just whoa. I saw this movie last night, and I have to say that I think this is probably the best movie I’ve seen in a very long time.
This isn’t a review because I don’t want to say anything about this film right now. If you want spoilers, find them somewhere else.
The only right choice for someone wanting to know more about this film is to go see it for themselves. Trust me, it’s worth it.
As expected, DiCaprio totally delivered on this movie. It’s probably his best film yet, and if not, it’s definitely at the top of the list.
Likewise, I was impressed with Ellen Page, who I always seemed to want to like because I just thought she would be a good actress – I just couldn’t find a movie with her in it that didn’t suck. (Granted, I haven’t seen them all – so recommendations are welcome.)
But I have to say, the actor who I was most surprised by was Joseph Gordon-Levitt: AKA Tommy from 3rd Rock From The Sun – which is how I always remembered him. I’ve seen him in some things since the 3rd Rock days but he still always had this very childish appearance or a childish persona to some extent. In Inception, he really, finally came off as an adult – a more manly adult than I would have expected from him. (Again, I haven’t seen all of his movies – or even his most recent, so that might be why.)
But regardless of what I thought of each character/actor individually, it was the story that I found simply remarkable. I was just blown away. I’m sure there are those of you out there who would just love to point out any plot holes or continuity inconsistencies or whatever that you have found. Well, shove off, I don’t give a damn about any of that.
This movie was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It’s one of the few movies I felt was worth the $10 ticket price. I’ll most definitely be buying it when it comes out on Blu-Ray. Don’t miss out on this “Theatre Experience” though – you should really see it before it leaves the cinemas!!
I’m beginning to feel redundant, so I’m going to shut up now. But seriously! GO SEE IT.
